Woman from the Senior Center Discussing her Grandmother

"Lee asked me last week what I am looking for when I go to Venice. I can't tell what I will find.... [But] As I sit there listening...I know that in my own mind I have proven my theory of the sacred being in the kitchen, god in the middens and throw aways, it all being a microcosm which must be treasured without being elevated or transformed or enlarged."

1. Quoted from correspondence dated 8/7/74 in Deena Metzger, "The Ultimate Magician," unpublished essay, 3.
